Espresso coffee machine manufacturer savours global media recognition and major sales boost

“Since 2001, Quest PR’s media expertise in positioning Fracino as a thought leader - coupled with the agency’s powerful writing skills - has accelerated our profile from a regional manufacturer to a global brand leader.

"Quest’s ability to seek out opportunities and compile cutting edge award submissions have resulted in our third generation family business enjoying unprecedented success in the media spotlight in 2013 – the year of our 50th anniversary.

"Across a four month period spanning January to April we have been awarded four prestigious awards. The UK manufacturers association EEF crowned us their Winner of Winners Award as the UK’s top manufacturer – the highest accolade which an entrant can receive. The EEF also awarded us the Outstanding Export accolade for our success in building our global export business from scratch.

"We next received the honour of Manufacturer of the Year from key trade publication Essential Café – followed just one week later by being awarded Birmingham Chamber’s Excellence in International Business award.

"The excitement and buzz from these achievements has been incredible – we’ve also been besieged with requests for interviews spanning regional, national and international media such as Reuters TV, Sky TV, The New York Times as well as a wealth of trade and regional media.

"Not only has this positive publicity boosted the moral and pride of our team, clients and national and global distributors, it has also sparked sales leads and orders.

"A BIG thank you from myself and all the Fracino team for the critical role that Quest has played in making this happen.”
